Breaking News! “90 Day Fiance” Star Larissa Dos Lima Santos Arrested by ICE As She Attempted to Leave Las Vegas

“This is no good(ee!) for me(eee)!”

Larissa Dos Santos Lima was about to leave her life— and her problems— behind in Las Vegas for a new start in Colorado with her boyfriend Eric Nichols but the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement apparently had other plans.

On Saturday, Larissa’s friend Carmen confirmed that the 90 Day Fiance star had been arrested by ICE. 

“Hi everyone, I am here with Eric Nichols [right now], Larissa just got arrested by ICE when she was about to leave her house and move to Colorado,” Carmen– who has been featured on “90 Day Fiance” frequently— wrote on Instagram. “We have no clue why. I want to let her family, fans and friends to know that we are going there right now and as soon as I have more info I will keep you guys posted. Send prayers.”

Only one day before, Larissa had posted photos to Instagram to celebrate her and Eric buying a home together in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

“Larissa was taken into custody Saturday at her and her boyfriend, Eric Nichols’ Las Vegas home, apparently as they were getting ready to hop in the car and take their U-Haul on a road trip to Colorado Springs … where they bought a home after selling their Vegas pad,” TMZ reported. “Her rep tells us … ‘Larissa’s legal team is working meticulously on her release and clearing up this misunderstanding.'”

Those associated with Larissa commented on blogger John Yates‘ post about the arrest. When some suggested that Debbie Johnson— the mother of Larissa’s ex-husband Colt Johnson— may have tipped ICE off to have Larissa arrested, Deb vehemently denied it.

“Don’t spread lies you know nothing about,” Debbie wrote. “Colt or I didn’t have anything to do with this. Please don’t tag me.”

“Not so sure of Cookie Dough’s innocence though…just sayin’…”

Colt’s other ex, Jess Caroline, offered her condolences via cry face emojis. (Jess and Larissa have become friends after bonding over their Colt breakups.) 

“Praying for you,” Jess wrote to Larissa on Instagram Stories.

Some suggested that the reported $100,000 Larissa recently made doing a sexy-time show earlier this week on the adult website CamSoda had something to do with her arrest, but that is unconfirmed.

As The Ashley previously reported, Larissa had over $72,000 worth of plastic surgeries and procedures this year in an effort to look more like Kylie Jenner. She debuted her new face and body on CamSoda via a live lingerie show.

UPDATE! Larissa was just released from jail, and posted on Instagram to let her fans know.

“Hi everyone, I’m out(ee!),” she said in a video. “Thank you Eric(ee)… and everyone. The… people from ICE are very nice, so I’m good to go.”

On Instagram Stories, Larissa posted a video of her in the moving van driving, so we can assume she and Eric resumed their plan to move to Colorado.

“Thank you so much Carmen, Lindsey, Eric(ee) for everything while I was held by ICE,” she said. “Thank you so much…”

Eric posted a video of Larissa leaving the facility.

Carmen posted her thoughts on the arrest, and confirmed that Larissa and Eric have left Vegas for Colorado.

“Thank God Larissa is ‘outee,'” Carmen wrote on Instagram Stories. “They are now on their way to Colorado to start their new life. The whole time I was with Eric I was worried about Larissa but at the same time I was happy to see how much Eric loves and cares about Larissa. He was devastated with the possibility of her deportation. I wish them the best on their new journey.”

Details as to what caused Larissa to get arrested have yet to be released.

  1. Great start ICE 🙂 I can only hope the rest of the justice system falls into line and deports her trashy, Michael Jackson-looking, gold digging, loose booty outta here and back home to take care of her damn kids. She is rotten inside and out and not what we need in terms of immigrants. Either come here and behave and start a life, or develop a useful skill. It is no get rich quick guarantee over here. Heck I have been living and working here for 40+ years since the age of 15 and am nowhere near rich lol. I cannot afford a major surgery I need and this tart gets to come over leaving her kids behind to gallivant around wanting “biggie” things and free jugs and goofy looking lips??? Naaaah son, send this hoochie home 🙂

    1. I feel the same way. And we are suppose to believe that Eric paid almost $80,000? A man that can’t afford a phone? He just wants to be on TV. Do her children need food or clothing? Does she send money home to Brazil to pay for whoever has her kids? The kids she just threw away and left behind? She’s a POS!!!

  2. Oh darn. I thought maybe someone was actually going to give her what she really needed. A swift kick into reality. She’s not married anymore. No clue why she’s still allowed to be here. She should be back with her kids instead of focusing on a boyfriend, plastic surgery and wearing little to no clothes for money she’s not even sending to her family that are raising her kids or her kids, period. That chick is straight trash!

  3. All right stop collaborate and listen
    Ice is back with my brand new invention
    Something grabs a hold of me tightly
    Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
    Will it ever stop yo I don’t know
    Turn off the lights and I’ll glow
    To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
    Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle

    stay lit

  4. He face is so frozen
    I had to watch her Instagram video several times in amazement.
    I know she has a lot of plastic surgery but there is absolutely no movement

  5. How long were Colt and Larissa married? If it was more than two years, there is essentially a permanent green card and if less than two years there is a conditional green card application (per my online research). Whatever Larissa needed it sounds like she had proper documentation to get that fast of a release from ICE.

    1. So supposedly coltee pulled the affidavit of support before her green card was issued. If so, and if she came in on a fiancée visa, she can only adjust status with him. If she came in on a different visa actually then she can marry the new guy and adjust through him.

      If she was issued the green card before coltee pulled the affidavit of support then she is free and clear.

      She could also be trying to apply for a green card through VAWA – there has been cases where both were abusive but the immigrant successfully got the green card because it only says you have to prove that the us citizen is abusive not that you weren’t abusive.

      The whole removal of conditions (process of applying for the conditions of a two year green card to be removed) is kinda a given as all you have to prove is that the relationship was entered into in good faith. You can even apply before the two years is up if you get divorced – getting divorced or even annulled doesn’t automatically result in having to leave the country.

      Having gone through the process myself it is interesting to see how many loopholes there are.

      1. Thanks for the information, very interesting. I only got mine from a random lawyer’s (off google) website from curiosity. I have no experience with green cards or the legal or immigration field.

  6. I’ve been waiting for story like this for months now. How was she even here as long as she was, after she and Colt divorced? He pulled his support/sponsorship for her staying/being here, and I don’t think her claim of being a victim of abuse to be able to stay worked too well, considering she had 3 charges of DV filed against HER!! Take that $100k you made and go back to Brazil and take care of your multiple (last I heard, 3) kids!!

    1. Because no other woman ever said Colt was abusive? I think it’s three women already.
      Calling the cops could also very well be part of his manipulation and control tactics.
